The love we give away...

Today's card was created when hurricane Irene was wrecking havoc. Rather fitting that the theme for this week's Created Byhand Challenge is Hurricane/Swirls.

The background was created using Portfolio Watersoluable Oil Pastels. Lay down light layer of Brilliance Sunflower Yellow Dew Drop inkpad on white cardstock. Draw swirls with red, oranges and yellow Portfolios and use fingertip to blend. When you're happy with your results use a waterbrush to lightly wet surface then heatset. Use Tim Holtz Paper Distresser on edges, then rub edges with yellow inkpad. Ink front edges of prepared base card with yellow inkpad and attach background. Stamp and emboss saying (Quietfire Design), cut out with Spellbinders Small Deckled Mega Rectangle, and ink with yellow. I added some Sea Oats seedheads to a round (spiral) clip and attached it to the corner. Add a dab of white glue behind each seedhead and lightly brush a bit of glue over the fronts to slow drying and preserve the color.
